Behind Pombo Square, the Church of Saint Lucy is one of the main religious buildings in the city. It was built in the mid XIX century and its lavish interior and attractive arcaded porch are worth a bit of attention.
The church is a work of the architect Antonio de Zabaleta, who had worked with great profusion in the area (he designed the plans of the nearby East Market and the House of the Arches of Botín of Pombo Square). It is a historicist building influenced both by the Italian Renaissance and the Paleo-Christian art.
The church dates back to one of the moments of greatest economic and urban growth in the city and is one of the few examples of Spanish religious architecture from the second half of the XIX century.
